A place that feels like homesubmitted by Yuhuan W. - |Recommended: YesThis apartment complex is so far the best one I've lived at 10 years in Davis . Excellent management team quick at replying to emails and get things resolved within 1-2 days .
Very clean, quiet and safesubmitted by Jade H. - |Recommended: YesFor my first apartment I would say it was great. It's far away from the busy part of Davis and very quiet. The Landscaping and greenery are always nice to come home to. No sign of any obnoxious neighbors and the service is great. If you put in a maintenance request it is done within the next day. Some of the updates in the apartment are cheap. They painted our tub which pealed off. The ventilation throughout the apartment isn't too great. The bathroom doesn't have a window and the fan doesn't work super well so mildew grows on the ceiling. We have a washer dryer in our apartment but when the dryer is running, lint goes everywhere and the fan is too weak so it get super humid. There are some quirks but overall, its a great place to live and come home to. The bike path is also very nice.
Amazingsubmitted by Eliza A. - |Recommended: YesHonestly, I’m not one to write reviews, but I have been so impressed by Portage Bay Apartments, that I had to. The staff and maintenance are absolutely amazing. If I have had any issues they always respond to the problem immediately with a smile. It is a beautiful place and I definitely enjoyed living here.
Love it heresubmitted by Kyra B. - |Recommended: YesIn general, this is a pretty quiet community. My neighbors in particular are loud routinely. Parking is full-up booked in my section of the parking lot by 5 45-6 pm, which can get pretty frustrating. However, this is a quiet, safe community and I love how beautifully it is maintained. The apartments are well maintained and the maintenance staff are super quick and friendly. The apartments are well-designed and I intend to stay here as long term as possible
Overall best apartments in Davissubmitted by Astryd M. - |Recommended: YesAfter looking at many apartments my housemates and I came to the conclusion that Portage Bay Apartments were the best option compared to others in Davis. The community and apartments themselves are super cozy and have a very comfortable environment. We are very happy with our selection even though we have only been here a couple of months now.
Student Friendlysubmitted by Eswar A. - |Recommended: YesA very clean and safe community. Neighbors are very polite and leasing officials are very responsive and solve the issues very fast.
I love the property, always nice looking.submitted by Jordan D. - |Recommended: YesI love living in Portage Bay, it is close to campus and places such as the gas station, food, and town. The appearance of the apartments is always well kept and I love the trees. The layout is small but very comfortable and perfect with lots of space. My only negative review is that I can hear my neighbors fighting literally everyday for hours, but I don't think that is the apartments fault. Overall, I am very pleased with these apartments.
Great property, clean and friendly staffssubmitted by Yoonji N. - |Recommended: YesI would tell them that its a great property with lots of parking space bike lots. The property is overall very clean and the staffs are friendly.
Would Love to Live Here Longer If I Couldsubmitted by Xandra G. - |Recommended: YesThis is my first apartment so I may be a little biased, but i really enjoyed living here. My roommate and I rented the 2 bedroom floor plan that had the bedrooms separate from each other so it was super private. Both bedrooms are the same size so we didn't have to worry about who was going to pay more if someone got the master bedroom. Quality of the apartments was really nice and maintenance was awesome They always came to fix whatever was broken the next day. My only complaint is that some of my neighbors were a little loud at late times of the night. Other than this, I loved living here
Greatsubmitted by Jiahao X. - |Recommended: Yesits nice
Great experience, nice community, would recommendsubmitted by Raegan T. - |Recommended: YesAwesome community and very nice landscaping in the area, very nice access pool and hot tub area. As a student that has to take the Unitrans bus to UC Davis, I appreciated that there was a bus stop right next to the complex. Always plenty of parking, friendly neighbors, really good staff and maintenance. The only issues I had were some of the bathroom fixtures needed to be fixed just because they couldn't withstand constant use, and there were often spiders coming into the rooms from the trees we lived under. Other than those minor things this was an overall great experience.
Very friendly and helpful staffsubmitted by Katrina M. - |Recommended: YesOverall well kept and all of the staff with management and maintenance are very prompt, thorough, and friendly. There were some issues that came up with the apartments, but they're older and they were very good about taking care of any of them. Renovations for the whole complex in the last year has given it a whole new look and have been really nice. My only real complaints would be that it is a little pricier than some student apartments and they charge a flat amenities fee that includes cost of a parking pass even if you don't have a car . Overall one of the best run complexes I've encountered.
Great place to live in Davissubmitted by Catherine W. - |Recommended: YesI've lived here for three years in Davis while in graduate school. West Davis is a nicer, quieter part of town. I never had any issues with neighbors being too loud. Maintenance is incredible. They're always on top of work orders and often come by the same day. Rent increases every year, but that's to be expected in Davis. The apartment complex has really put an effort in upgrading and renovating by putting in new counter tops, redoing the fences outside, putting in laminate floors, etc. Great place to live, never had any issues. Really can't complain about anything at this place
